Twitter reverses decision on campaign ad

Posted online

Twitter changed its mind about a decision to block a campaign video posted by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tennessee.

The video promoting her Senate campaign launch states: "I fought Planned Parenthood and we stopped the sale of baby body parts."

Twitter originally said the video was “inflammatory” and violated its guidelines.

“While we initially determined that a small portion of the video used potentially inflammatory language, after reconsidering the ad in the context of the entire message, we believe that there is room to refine our policies around these issues," officials later said after backlash from Blackburn and other Republicans.

I'd like to give a 'shout - out' to Twitter for their decision to change their mind. A willingness to be open to change is so needed right now. From both sides of MOST issues. Thank You
